Ivy??? you've got ivy too??? - we had ivy up to the eaves and 7ft wide on each fence - the weight of it brought the fences down in a rainstorm!!!
But we've got rid of the ivy and the Russian Vine and the soapwort only creeps through from next door when I let it - I was out there attacking it yesterday!!!
If you're not my neighbour then the person who lived at your house before you must be cloned from the person who lived here!!!
I think it's Parthenocissus quinquefolia, it's big but I think if you cut it down and hack at the roots you'll be able to get it out. You can get stuff to drill and inject into the stump
Plonker is OK andy, we're all plonkers at times
I thought it looked like a creeper. The neighbour has one growing up her back wall, but it isn't that vigorous. Perhaps due to a small footing.
Amazing plants that can grow that rapidly. My hops go from nothing to a dense cover very quickly, but they are manageable.
I keep pulling down what is a wild vine in my garden. I assumed it was some wild honey suckle, that's a little out of control.
I have ivy too and I have a garden! Am I your neighbour too! Lol
Cut it down to the base and remove it, dig out the roots as best you can and treat any regrowth with a weedkiller containing glyphosate. Spray or paint it on and leave it for several weeks until the leaves have died. That means that the weedkiller will have travelled back into the roots and is killing them too!
Can you still get Rootout? injected into holed drill in the stumps it was very effective
Chatted to neighbour and their Virginia Creeper is confined to a small pot, which would probably explain why it hasn't gone off like a rocket.
